ProShot for Windows Phone 8 updated, adds an intervalometer to the mix

ProShot is a feature rich camera app for your Windows Phone 8 device for those wanting a little more control over their camera. The app was recently updated to version 2.3 that tweaks the app's overall performance and adds a self timer and intervalometer feature.

What's a intervalometer you ask? Simply put, a time lapse setting. ProShot now can capture time lapse images using delays that range from 3 seconds to 5 minutes. The self-timer feature has options for delays ranging from 1 second to 10 seconds and an option to capture a three shot burst.

The time lapse can be a little tricky to initiate. You choose the time lapse setting under you camera mode (the button at the center top of the screen) and set your interval. From there you tap and hold the screen to pull up the action button. You will see confirmation of the time lapse setting pop up on the screen and then you press the shutter button to initiate the time lapse. A countdown timer and shutter count graphic will appear and when you're done, just hit the back button to end the time lapse.

Timelapse Settings

The developer does note that a bug was discovered with the time lapse feature where the timer crashes after fifty frames. An update to fix this bug is in the pipeline so it shouldn't be an issue for long.

Other aspects of the version 2.3 update include:

  • Tripled image save speed
  • Added option to choose language
  • EXIF now has proper geotag
  • Added MF assist zoom
  • Added tutorial
  • AF Assist now has 1 setting for all modes
  • UI tweaks and bug fixes

All in all, the update adds to an already fantastic alternative to our native Windows Phone 8 camera app. There is a free trial for ProShot and the full version is currently running $1.99. You can find it all here in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, DigitalDK, for the tip!

Must have camera app

Just downloaded the update. By far the best camera app on WP8! I wish I could unlock this by pushing the camera button from lock screen instead of the regular camera. Being able to set a specific function for the camera button would be an interesting feature....

Nil Nolan says:

Best camera app .. EVER !!!

danjah says:

Awesome! One thing though; would be great if holding the screen was enough to start the burst, timer etc. A little hazzely to both hold the screen and press the camera-button at once, while having maneuvered the camera into place.

Sean Maloney says:

Would Microsoft hire this guy to replace the native WP camera app team?  :)

I would be nice if we had the option to auto-set exposure (brightness) based on where we tap the screen, just as focus is set based on where we tap.  When I'm taking a picture of people, I usually tap their face.  I don't care about the rest of the world.  :)  And wouldn't it be cool if we could use multi-touch for this?  So we could have multiple points for focus and exposure evaluation?

Oh yes absolutely!

Jazmac says:

After reading the glowing reviews, I gotta cop.

Chia Howz says:

love the manual focus so much but i still hope microsoft make build in the manual focus without other app!!!i need a manual focus on photo and video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ignotum666 says:

Now we have timelapse :D
I'm very happy with this app ♥

Sam Wong says:

Looks like ProShot is a better camera alternative than CameraPro. It updates more often.

therealper says:

this program was the only good thing i miss about windows 8. windows 8 totally disappointed me, i wish this program was also available for ios or android

gibbage says:

Does anyone know if the timelaps shots will be taken with the phone in "sleep" mode, or do you keep to keep the phone awake?  Any sort of timelaps photography will take considerable time, and having to keep the phone awake is a deal killer.

RiseUpGames says:

Hello,
Unfortunately, it is not possible to do timelapse while the phone's screen is locked. Once the screen is locked, the camera hardware automatically turns off.  We could not find a way around this issue, I'm afraid.

I love the manual focus zoom assist!!!!

I've used it to get some fantastic macros. The native AF sucks at macros.

Best app ever.

Milad519 says:

So far was the best app for WP8, I have both Proshot & Camerapro on my Lumia 920...Proshot is my first choice but after yesterday update on Camerapro its hard to say which one is better, on quality of picturs I think CameraPro is better and they also brought some very nice capabilities like Bracketing (For taking HDR photoes) into App with self timer and...Overally regarding to manual focus and shutter speed of 4 sec, Proshot is killer but in other areas they are very close and completing each other...

im so confused on how to make timelapse work properly... i've tried all suggestions and it won't take a proper timelapse picture of my brother moving a lighter up and down. i hold down the screen to initiate timelapse and i don't know what to do

RiseUpGames says:

Hello,
In order to initiate a timelapse, you must first select "timelapse" from the camera mode menu (the top panel). Press + hold the screen until focus is achieved, and then while still pressing the screen, press the camera button to start the timelapse.  It may seem a bit complicated at first, but after a bit of practice it becomes really easy! :)   The same method is used to activate self-timer and burst modes.
Currently though, timelapse has a few bugs (it may die after 50+ shots, and it resets focus to infinity). These bugs will be addressed in v2.4, which I hope to have finished by Tuesday. I apologize for the bugs, and appreciate your patience in the meantime!

Awesome app. But how can I see photo that I `ve shot by this app? I use free trial version.

pokokun says:

Trial version doesn't allow you to take picture. It just helps you get the idea how it works. 

believe me, this app is worth every penny if you love photography.
